Best Chinese in Tampa

If you are looking for Chinese in Tampa this is your ink serious choice. It's a must have on the Tampa foodie trail. You must have the salt and pepper calamari to start. The insiders get the three item menu for $22. It has the calamari as an option and you may choose from many of the highlighted... read more

My sister and I visited this restaurant one afternoon, and decided to order from the main menu, versus the luncheon specials. Apparently, we ordered enough food for four people, but that was fine, because leftovers were just as good the second time around. We ordered clams as an appetizer and were so surprised to have about 30 clams on the... More

Anything you figured about American-Chinese food is about to get blown away. Mind you—if you lived in Chinese-invaded cities like New York or San Francisco I’m SURE you’ve had better Cantonese-style cuisine. But for meek, smaller Tampa Bay YUMMY HOUSE IS WHERE IT’S AT. Yes-- it’s unassuming in a dinky plaza in an dinky side of town but just look... More

Best use of a lazy susan in a restaurant. Lots of dishes outside of the mainstream of Chinese food and yet enough in your comfort zone that you are willing to give them all a try. I never tried Chinese sausage and they do fried eggplant and calamari like no other. Five of us at the table and still tons... More

Make a reservation, you'll need one, especially with a group. You can bring your own wine. Order a variety of dishes, great place to share and compare. Service is efficient, food is wonderful. No fortune cookies, don't ask.

12 of us went back to the Yummy house for dinner this past Sunday. We were some what apprehensive because of the 80 health code violations they recently racked up during an inspection. We paid particular attention to the cleanliness of the restaurant inside, floors, tables, menus, silverware and we felt comfortable that things were clean. Now we could account... More

The food is the best Chinese in Tampa. The service is good and staff is pleasant. The atmosphere is plain but nice. A good value.

I I usually go for lunch, which is usually good. warning, never, never order anything with tofu in it! I did and got a huge bowl of the nasty stuff. The dish was supposed to be chicken, shrimp, scallops, ribs etc. I got two shrimps, two scallops and a sliver of chicken! I was to mad! Never going back!
